The man responsible for pushing the CIA/Russia hacking story works for a Hillary Clinton aide and was responsible for crafting the false Benghazi talking points
If this story is true the man who is in the center of the Russia hacking story, Mike Morell, just happened to go to work for an aide to Hillary Clinton after resigning suddenly from the CIA last year. Here is more:
Mike Morell, the former acting director of the CIA, is generating headlines for claiming that alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election amounts to “the political equivalent of 9/11.”
Morell further suggested that the U.S. should respond in a significant way to the alleged Russian actions and he has given interviews supporting reports that the CIA believes Russia tried to influence the election in favor of President-elect Donald Trump.
Morell, who abruptly resigned from the CIA in June 2013, took a job that year at the Beacon Global Strategies firm, where he still works as senior counselor.
Beacon was founded by Phillippe Reines, who served as Communications Adviser to Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state. From 2009-2013, Reines also served in Clinton’s State Department as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Strategic Communications. Reines is the managing director of Beacon.
He is the man who is reporting the CIA believes Russia tried to influence the election and he just happens to have ties to Hillary Clinton. The mainstream media and the Democratic Party have taken his claim and run with it; somehow turning it into an official CIA report when as far as we know there is no report. The FBI, as well as several other intelligence agencies, do not agree with this report which does not exist but that has not stopped them from repeating the talking points.
But speaking of talking points, Mike Morell just happens to be the same person who mostly responsible for crafting the debunked Benghazi talking points:
Absent from the news media coverage of Morell’s statements is that he is known for his leading role in helping to craft the infamously misleading talking points used by Obama administration officials to blame the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks on a YouTube video.
It looks like he is quite the purveyor of fake news…
